    Hello I’m new to the sho forum and I’m 17 with a white 1991 sho 5spd with 118,000 miles. I was looking to see where I could get a bra for my car

    That's old school.
    I remember using one on my 1985 Turbo Coupe.
    I believe I have two or three new in stock.

    I remember those car bras.

    And those memories were/are that most end users failed to install them correctly, and they actually ended up CAUSING damage, rather then preventing same.

    Not to mention just plain wear and tear from atmospheric conditions, etc.

    You'd likely be better served acquiring a quote for paint protection film.

    It's clear/translucent in color. Professionally installed and forms to the curves etc of whatever surface it's being applied to.

    3M Clear Bra comes to mind, but there are competitors out there.

    My logic is that the hood doesn't cost that much to shoot. Maybe $300. So if after 100k miles you have a lot of rock chips, just get it repainted to look like new. The protection film looks nice when properly installed but the only rock chip I have on my 2015 with 15k miles on is about 1 foot from the back edge close to driver side wiper and a clear bra wouldn't have helped in that case. If you are in an area where you are going to get lots of rock chips then the clear bra makes more sense.
